of his own money for backing candidates who support gun control across the country. wayne lapierre from the nra says he is insane. look who is talking about being insane. all of that and more on current tv. bp. >> broadcasting across the nation, on your radio, and on current tv this is "the bill press show." >> bill: winter is over. spring is here. so now it's snowing in washington, d.c. what the hell is going on? what do you say? hello, everybody. great to see you this monday morning, this monday november -- november? where did that come from? >> feels like it. >> let's start over again. yeah, feels like it. looks like it. this march 25th here, we are coming to you live from our smelly nation's capitol -- that snowy nation's capitol. the storm made it to the east coast, snowing up and down the east coast. doesn't look like it's going to stay around very long. it's kind of wet, but it's going away but it's a mess and the roads are a mess this morning. great to see you wherever you happen to be in this great land of ours. we are coming to you on you
. >> that is wayne lapierre head of the nra. this guy he was referring to is new york mayor mike bloomberg. here with us now is democratic senator from pennsylvania and member of the foreign relations committee, senator bob casey and former governor of pennsylvania, msnbc political analyst and co-chair of fix the debt campaign, governor ed rendell. you guys, pennsylvania. huge state. huge sprawling state. filled with sports people, hunters, gun owners, the vast majority of them responsible. where are you on what wayne lapierre said? >> well, we have a million hunters in the state. as ed knows, it's a big part of our culture and pennsylvania. after newtown i spent a lot of time thinking what happened there and i made a pretty substantial shift in my position. i think we should have not only a vote but pass some of the measures we have been talking about, the assault weapons ban, the magazine clip legislation, if we can get to that, and the background checks. there could be others but those are the three main ones. even if it's only done by way of amendment when we get to the legislation itself. >
guns. you know what's going on here. >> if wayne lapierre is the country mouse, he may be the only making money to preach the kind of stuff he preached yesterday. he tries to make this about mime bloomberg and nra. that's a waste of an important national moment when everybody in this country, nra member, gun owner, and person who has never looked at a gun in their life, aught to be having a conversation about where there is common ground. in discussing this with people out in the country since newtown and for the past five years. despite what you hear on news programs, there's actually an enormous and pretty durable consensus about what you would do if you wanted to save a lot of lives but at the same time respect the rights of law-abiding citizens. it's background checks. that's what everyone agrees on. >> i think they do. the numbers sure prove it. anyway, mayor mike bloomberg of new york argued yesterday the public is on his side when it comes to background checks in particular. polls show nine out of ten americans support the background check. lapierre chose to blame the messen
." that is kind of thing i think wayne lapierre was pushing on sunday on "meet the press." pushing the idea it's about mike bloomberg, not about your own safety from guns. >> well, a couple of things. that's all we can ask for is pryor listens to arkansans. they think every gun buyer should get a background check no matter who they buy the gun from or where they buy it. this get background checks because they buy them at licensed dealers. if you buy the gun online or buy the gun at a gun show, there's no background check. that's where the criminals and seriously mentally ill go to get their guns. all we want is to close that loophole. we think it's going to happen and think it will happen with senator pryor's support. >> what do you think of lapierre yesterday? he is trying to make it one of these country mice against the city mice. he's trying to basically say if you want to sand up against your community against the big shots from gotham, you can vote for more guns. you know what's going on here. >> if wayne lapierre is the country mouse, he may be the only making money to preach the kind of
gun owners. >> already supported background checks. >> wayne lapierre greed with that back in the 1990s. he was one of 85% in the 1990s until, i guess the gun manufacturers told him to change his position. >> right. >> okay. >> right. now he parades around with this clown show literally say if they take the rapist gun from the rapist, they will come after your gun. >> if we scream rapists from getting guns and doing a background check to see if they have been a rapist or felon, we are somehow violating other americans' rights? that's just a lie. >> here is eugene robinson what he writes in "the washington pos post". the worst way to respond to the shocking massacre in newtown, connecticut, would be to let political self-interests stand in the way of meaningful action. the parents of those 20 slain children deserve a vote on the assault weapons ban. the families of 30,000 americans who will be killed by gunfire this year deserve a vote. bringing the measure to the floor of both the senate and the house is the least congress can do. we all know what is happening here. senate democrats fa
heated on guns this morning. mike bloomberg puts up millions for an ad campaign. wayne lapierre calls him nuts. >>> the irs. yes, the internal revenue service, is behind this "star trek" movie starring tax collectors and it's getting backlash. first, we start with developing news at this hour. secretary of state john kerry made a surprise visit to baghdad earlier today where he spoke to prime minister nuri al maliki. secretary kerry is now in amman, jordan, and so is chief foreign affairs correspondents andrea mitchell, traveling with the secretary of state. she joins us by phone now. andrea, what did secretary kerry accomplish with this trip to baghdad? >> reporter: well, it was a very tough trip and a tough message, because we went to baghdad, a quick visit. surprise, under tight security and secrecy, for obvious reasons, because ten years ar the war, there still are terror attacks. last week, when dozens were killed in baghdad. he was in a secure place in the embassy and then visiting prime minister maliki and the speaker of the parliament in iraq in their residences, but his message t
. the mayor is against illegal guns, they're making a difference. >> he received some criticism. wayne lapierre said to nbc's david gregory about mayor bloomberg this. take a listen. >> people all over, millions of people, sending us five, ten, 15, $20 checks, saying stand up to this guy that says we can only have three bullets, which is what he said. stand up to this guy that says ridiculous things like the nra wants firearms with nukes on them. it is insane. >> lapierre also says bloomberg wants to buy america, heard what he said, he called him insane. when you look at this, could bloomberg's massive wealth interfere with his message with all of the other criticisms levied by the nra? >> it is not just of course mayor bloomberg, you have the brady campaign, a gun organization fighting for stronger gun safety measures as well, along with the american people. and there are just as many i believe just individuals and families that are willing to send in the five and ten dollar contributions adding to the effort. i would encourage mayor bloomberg and the brady campaign to reach out to average con
